Need Help adjusting lines on Ozone 3M

Postby Hudsonhacker » Mon Dec 31, 2018 3:35 pm

Hi All

I am new to this sport and have been been learning to fly my kite(s) with my kids without our skis on. I have a 6M ozone that flies perfectly.
I have a 3M Ozone that plain will not stay in the air. Some of the lines that go from the middle of canopy seem to be too long on one side. However, I cannot figure out how to tighten them. Hard to explain, but I guess you would call them the interior lines. There is not way I can see to tighten them up. When The kite lifts off, it will climb, but after a few seconds, you can see there is no pressure on one side of the canopy and it simply folds in on itself and falls out of the sky.

Sorry for not using the correct terminology, I am very new to this. Any ideas appreciated.

Which 6m is it? Are we talking depower or fixed bridle? More info would be helpful.
